Frankly, I am quite sympathetic to the seniors. They have enjoyed a lifetime of independence. They have every right in the world to keep that independence for as long as humanly possible. We must support senior independence in every way we can! It is so important to avoid the common pitfall of infantilizing them in anyway. Their suffering the degradation of waning abilities and faculties should not be compounded by that. We must hold dear the picture of them as their strong and vibrant younger selves. Accordingly, we must treat them exactly the way we would wish to be treated. We need to promote senior independence in seniors all over including Pelham Parkway. Exercise is a big part of promoting senior independence.
The National Council on Aging explains that these are just a few of the benefits of an exercise program for elderly people:
- Fights Chronic Disease
- Improves Immunity
- Boosts Mood
- Relieves Osteoarthritis Pain
- Fights Bone Loss
To keep seniors fit and vital, David York Agency has put together a workbook. The senior and their healthcare practitioner should fill it in with their personalized recommendations. This will help their skills, muscles, and brains remain in as top shape as physically possible. Fitness will result in senior independence.
David York Agency wants to help make one of the most common goals a reality – Getting into Shape! To that end, we have developed another one of our blockbuster tools to make the process go as smoothly as possible. Your senior loved one (and anyone else for that matter) can use this booklet with their trainer or healthcare professional. Using this, you can set concrete and safe goals so that they can be the best they can be – physically and mentally!
Always here to help!
